A shiny and bouncy mane is something that can make any girl’s heart swell with pride. But your dreams of looking glorious may seem to shatter if you have curly hair. It’s not difficult to control curly hair, but certainly needs some extra effort when you compare it with naturally straight hair. Ignoring your wild, frizzy and unruly hair isn’t the solution and will simply worsen the situation.
Having grown up with your unruly curly hair, you definitely know how children use to make fun of you at school. The same can happen in your professional life, with the only difference that the taunts may not come openly. So think beyond the regular washing and combing, to turn this mess into something that can make you feel proud.
Curly hair has always been in fashion and there are so many people with straight hair going in for curling, but please note that we’re talking about curly hair not frizzy hair. To tame your curly locks, limit your usage of shampoo, in the first place, to no more than once a week. And for all the other days when you feel like washing your hair, don’t wash but just condition them with a good conditioner.
While your hair is still wet, comb it with a wide toothed comb. Using hairbrushes will just increase the frizz, so stick to the comb. Once your hair is dry never use the comb instead use the finger-combing method. Curly hair is dry in texture, so get some leave-in conditioner or hair moisturizer, for everyday use, to cut down on the frizz.
A lovely homemade recipe to add shine to your curly hair, is to rinse your hair with a jug of warm water to which a tablespoon of either vinegar or lemon juice has been added. Other hair remedies from the kitchen is egg, apply it onto your hair and let it stand for half an hour before washing it off with cold water. While giving a shine to your hair, egg will also work as the conditioner. And the third one on your list should be a combination of the above two. Quite right, we’re talking about mayonnaise which will bring the benefits of both the egg and the vinegar.
Try out these small things on a regular basis, and the problem of frizzy curly hair will never bother you again.
